comment How do I backup and restore a Moto X to a replacement Moto X? (Apps, icons, and SMS)
Did you take a look at our backup tag-wiki? You'll find the solution there. Hint: If you've got a custom recovery, a Nandroid backup should do that (provided hardware is the same). Otherwise, adb backup is the one coming closest (provided Android 4.0+ on both devices).

comment s3 bootloop switching to cyanogenmod with cwm
That's correct: you can use adb sideload to update your device (see the CWM/TWRP ADB Sideload Guide on XDA for the S3 Mini).

comment What are the different signal indicators avalable on the notification bar?
Confirmed: R stands for Roaming, in the sense of being booked into a "foreign" network (i.e. that does not necessarily mean additional costs apply, unless you make/take a phonecall or have data-roaming active; it just signals you're booked into that network).

comment Samsung galaxy Nexus Dead/ Bricked
OK, I did it again (integrating the facts from your comment). As I cannot imagine all the ROM images you've tried had a broken system.img, I assume the status read fails must apply to the partition. Still, I've no clear idea how you could fix that – so having collected additional details from you, I now must pass this on to someone more experienced in this area. Good luck!

comment Samsung galaxy Nexus Dead/ Bricked
If it always fails at system.img even with different ROMs, there seems to be a problem with that partition. What's the exact error message? Have you already tried "wipe system" (or "format system") from recovery immediately before initiating the flash process?

comment Route Application through Mobile Data when on Wifi
Good find. Have you tried the other solution? I never got any feedback on that, except for what Matt wrote over there: It didn't work. Also note what I've quoted here is "general behaviour" (not taking that app into account). Still, it's a good pointer; I'd love to get more feedback on that app – if possible, even positive feedback :)

comment my tab nero nearly worked a week, then the wifi stopped connecting, any idea why?
The tiny arrows stand for "data transfer", so obviously data is going over your WiFi connection. Can you please edit your question with what exactly is not working? Some examples would be helpful to understand what might be going on.
